Yes potentially depending on the surrounding facts and the status of his heirs. Seek legal advice. There should be no charge to explore this with a competent attorney who handles wrongful death.

Yes. There are circumstances where I have held the homeowner responsible. Only the facts of the drowning must be considered showing fault or negligence. Does the homeowner have a Homeownwers.insurance policy?

Was there negligence in discovery or rendering assistance? Defect in the design or maintenace of the pool? Excess chlorination? etc..
